I’ve been eyeing Michal’s art for a while now. I am struck by the immense silence radiating from these images. Michal gives us a peek into a post-apocalyptic future devoid of sound and life. Solitude seems to play an important emotional role here. The ambience overall is a haunting one, filled with a nihilistic hopelessness. And yet, at the same time, I also feel excited at the prospects of an unknown future and seemingly alien Earth. I suppose that is the point, after all. Hope might be a pale, sickly thing in Michal’s world but it still exists, and you’ll find it beyond the clouds of radioactive smog shrouding the distant horizons.

What do you think? Please share your thoughts below.

Cheers!
